Snare of the day

Rogers Super Ten

Featured snare drum today is this lovely Rogers Super Ten

Rogers Super Ten 6.5 snare drum available at Nick Hopkin Drums www.nickhopkindrums.com

This drum is fairly rare to come across in the UK, a 14 x 6.5″ chrome over steel shell with all original hardware. If you’re looking for that classic American Rock low tuned thud, then this drum could be your answer. The internal dampener/muffler is nice, just touching the head slightly reduces the need for gels on the batter head.

Tune it up mid-high and you get great stick response and a lovely crack!

Many seek the Ludwig 402 as their go to 6.5″ snare drum, and overlook other worthy contenders such as this. More photos and info about this drum on the website.
